Fundraising Ideas to Support Disability Charities
It cannot be overstated just how important fundraising is for disability charities in Devon. Without the support of people who truly care, we wouldn’t be able to provide the inclusive outdoor adventure activities available at Calvert Exmoor.
If you want to contribute to our valuable work or any other charities close to your heart, but don’t know where to begin, we’ve compiled a few fundraising ideas that can help support disability charities.
What Fundraising Allows Calvert Exmoor to Do
At Calvert Exmoor, we’re dedicated to enabling people with disabilities to experience accessible and exciting outdoor activities.
We believe that learning, behavioural, sensory or physical disabilities do not hinder people from participating in activities that are challenging and fun, it’s merely a matter of adapting to individual needs. Some of our activities include:
- Challenge Course
- Crate Stack
Our guests get the chance to experience these activities and many others. In addition, we provide tasty meals and accessible accommodation to ensure everyone’s stay is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
These services are immensely valuable to a wide range of people. For example, our adaptive cycling enables wheelchair users to experience the thrill of whizzing along our cycling tracks, and people with autism benefit hugely from spending time outdoors.
We do all of this without government funding, meaning we depend upon your support to continue what we do at Calvert Exmoor and enrich the lives of everyone no matter their level of ability.
Fundraising is the lifeblood of charities like Calvert Exmoor, so please consider supporting us as that money goes directly to our guests.
Disabilities don’t mean an end to fun and adventure. With proper assistance, there’s no limit to the number of things you can achieve.
What You Can Do to Help Raise Money for Charity
The best part about fundraising is that you can do anything you want! Community-led or independent, there are no strict rules in place so feel free to create a challenge that suits you.
If you’re stuck for ideas, we have some suggestions for you.
Take a Look at Our Events
At Calvert Exmoor, we would love to help you get involved in fundraising. Take a look at upcoming events so you don’t miss out!
No matter your level of ability, physical challenges are an excellent way of drumming up interest! People love to see someone push themselves and achieve.
Whether you want to hike, run a marathon, cycle, or wheel, try exerting yourself beyond your usual routine. Or maybe a football tournament is more your speed?
We’ve had all sorts of people raise money for Calvert Exmoor. A family, a stroke survivor and even a local chef, proving you can be an everyday hero!
Simple to do and tasty, a bake sale is something friends and family can easily get involved with. It’s hard to turn down a homemade treat so this is an excellent way of garnering support.
Sell, Sell, Sell
If you have a lot of unwanted or unused items building up in your household, consider having a good spring clean and auctioning them off. Who knows? Maybe your knick-knacks will find a new home.
Raise Funds from Home
Thanks to social media, you could raise money from home. Even before COVID, the internet was an innovative way for people to create online events, but now more than ever, streaming platforms like Zoom enable you to connect with people in a unique way.
You could show off a talent or attempt something out of your comfort zone if you’re not afraid of getting silly. Activities such as karaoke, dance challenges, virtual murder mysteries, or streaming video games are just a taste of what you can achieve online — the possibilities are endless!
If you believe that people with disabilities deserve to enjoy challenges just as much as non-disabled people, then please consider donating or fundraising for a good cause.
Here at Calvert Exmoor, we are passionate about ensuring children and adults can participate in a range of accessible adventure activities and enjoy their stay with us to the fullest. If any of our activities sounds like something you or someone you know would love, get in touch with the Calvert Exmoor team today.
